“Great place to stay in San Diego on budget price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

The hotel was definitely worth the money. The check iin process was easy and quick. We requested a 3rd floor room,away from the freeway and elevator ( because I read previous reviews of the hotel and it sounded like that would be the the best way to get the most relaxation at night ) and the staff was able to accomodate us in this request. Our room was very clean, as well was the bathroom. The room had a small refrigiator, and microwave, this took care of dinner with little effort and saved money on going on. The breakfast was great with large variety of food, waffles, bagles, pastries, etc! nice little room to sit down and wake up in the morning with a cup of coffee! ( it was also very clean! ) The business center offered everything a traveller would need, for example to print boarding passes, check emails. Overall, to stay in San Diego and stay on budget, too, this hotels offered everything that a smart traveller might look for! I would absolutely stay here again ( as I am getting ready to make reservations for next month! )

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

We stay in this hotel and it was really nice, really close to many attractions. Legoland two exits away, and the was beach down the street, also the Carlsbad Outlets were a exit away. The Room was decent and hotel had continental breakfast. There were close enough restaurants to run to eat dinner at and really quiet neighborhood. Could not ask for a better resting spot. Only issue I had there was a big softball crowd there and they used up all the space that the pool area had and we could not swim because they pretty much over took the area, which was a little disappointing that the hotel didnt advise them after 4 hours to maybe let others swim there. We left to dinner came back and they were still partying there. But all in all I would return.

The hotel accomodations were okay - not great but satisfactory. The hotel is close to I-5 and there was much noise from the highway in the room. The room was clean and neat upon arrival. The continental breakfast was very good. The management was extremely helpful. It was a good location - close to I-5 and close to the beach and other attractions.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closest to the ocean - the west side. This will help to avoid the noise from I-5.

We stayed in room 351 almost a ocean view. The room very nice and clean room with a king bed and a LCD tv. And the staff was excellent and the breakfast was pretty crowded could use another toaster. but its close to the water. its close to the highway but our room was on the west side so we didn't hear the highway noise.
